A petition to ban 'Bornstubborn' (formerly Caspiantiger) from the Student Room, or at least D&D for reducing the possibility of others to engage in a constructive and fruitful debate, not to mention his incessant racist and sexist comments. Now the mods haven't taken any action so I thought I'd start this debate to address this issue and freedom of speech more generally.

Should we tolerate trolls on TSR?

All those in favour say aye!

There's more than one that deserves banning to be honest.

That's true. I guess the thread is about trolls and annoying brats generally.

2026 calling for someone to be banned for being a 'troll'? Hilarious.

I don't know about the specific member, having not hung round in D&D for a while... but you can't ban people for being inflammatory idiots. The term "troll" implies he's doing it to get a laugh out of your reactions, but your post makes it sound more like he's just bigoted. Well, that's unpleasant, yeah, but not a ban-worthy offence...

Suggested course of action: ignore, or report any abusive posts.

Well you can't ban somebody for being racist or sexist either, if they aren't being offensive or abusive. If i say 'i think the japanese are a superior race because...', have i broken any rules?

I thought that, some things said in the threads were absolutely disgusting!

Although rather than banning him, why dont we all just ignore him instead?

I love how no one has said that he makes them laugh :rofl:

And yes, ban him. After that thread that he started about Africa, I think that we should castrate him too while we're at it :yes:

lol, have a look in the women earn more thread, and the africa and aids thread. Think he has annoyed a lot of people in the Isreal Thread, but i dont know enough about that situation to comment on what is being said.

*shrugs* Depends if you're doing it in an "I have statistics and evidence, please discuss" way or an "I'm an unpleasant arse and feel like offending some people" way. This is D&D, it's meant to get heated, people are meant to think other people are talking ****. It wouldn't be a debate if we all gave our own polite opinions, laughed about it and shrugged it off to a cup of tea. If he does something worth banning him for, then ban the ****er, but if he's just making contentious debates with his bigoted opinions, well... that's the nature of the forum.
